Mitt Romney’s campaign is apparently worried about being associated with a Republican proposal (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/17/us/politics/gop-super-pac-weighs-hard-line-attack-on-obama.html?_r=1&hp) , first reported by the New York Times today, to run $10 million worth of racially-tinged ads attacking President Obama for his connection to Reverend Jerimiah Wright. Despite criticizing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Rr4eTdpfCo&feature=youtu.be) Obama for “listening to reverend Wright” in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show in February, the presumed GOP nominee twice slammed (http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2012/05/17/exclusive_romney_repudiates_conservative_groups_pl anned_rev_wright_attacks) the proposal today, after his campaign manager did the same earlier.

At a press conference in Florida today, Romney repeated that he “repudiated” the Wright attack. But when asked about his comments on Hannity’s show, Romney said he stood by them, even though he said he couldn’t remember them:

ROMNEY: I’m actually gonna — I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. I’ll go back and take a look at what was said there.

Buried in his own BS!


As usual.

Romney is going strictly for the dog whistle, red meat nutjobs. Has been all along.

Republicans have been in agreement with all of the racist attacks since President Obama annnounced for the presidency.

Not one of them has taken a stand against the racist attacks, other than John McCain, during his campaign. Mostly, they spout them out themselves.

They have adopted a racist plan for purging African American voters for years, all the way back to the Floriduh fiasco, when Katherine Harris was "purging" names from the voters lists for Jeb Bush.

Pretty despicable when a political party arranges to prevent people from voting. What could be more un-American, than that? Maybe lying the country into a war, for your corporate buddies, the bin Laden's?
